THE FUTURE OF TYRANNY IS GREEN!
Our Mother, who art the earth
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom hath come
Thy will being done
On earth for this is our heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our pollutions
As you forgave those who polluted before us
And lead us not into materialism
But deliver us from ego
For thou art the guardian, the benefactor, and the life everlasting
Long after humanity
Gaiastan is an adventure set in a post World War III tyranny.
The world of ’Gaiastan’…
The concept of liberty, property and the old religions have been eradicated, replaced with a new world order– a totalitarian, hive-mind paradigm called ‘Gaianism’… One harmonious, collectivist system merging ethics, economics, religion and art.
This new world order holds that Man is merely a vulgar scourge preying upon the living planet. The People’s Republic of Gaiastan is the totalitarian solution to man’s imperfect nature– Mankind’s Great Leap Forward. It is the outgrowth of an anti-renaissance where man has begun to transform into the improved and immortal ‘Overman’. These Overman elites are like fleshly gods, living out their ‘sustainable’ lives in densely populated urban centers and transferring their consciousness into silicon (aka Heavenly Virtuality) at death.
The remainder of humanity has been relegated to the lower castes: the laboring serfs known as ‘undermen’ who live in shantytowns and provincial villages, and the clans of cannibalistic savages called ‘unhumans’ who prowl the Dehumanized Zones.
Indigo and Staley are the only two survivors of the seventh failed mission to Mars. They are sent out by bureaucrats on a National Triumph to be paraded as conquering heroes of the People’s Republic. But their tour takes them beyond the reach of their totalitarian lords. They venture across the vast Dehumanized Zones and into the wild lands populated by the ‘undermen’. It is out there, in a tiny village called Hegeltown, far beyond the omnipotent social pressure and omnipresent surveillance, that a series of transformative events begins to unfold.
The wounds left by their disastrous Mars mission drive the addicted Staley off on an opiate-induced walkabout and push the disillusioned Indigo into the arms of the beautiful exile D’naia– herself a failed elite, cast off by the Overman for her refusal to be conditioned.
Mr. Lever, an immortal ’Sunstein Agent’– an ancient Order of secret police– is commissioned to investigate the disappearance of the two national heroes. But his confrontations with the transformed spacemen begin to alter the nature of his mission. He decides that they can only be salvaged if they are brought in to have their brains erased and reformatted.
Time grows short. The cannibalistic unhumans are closing in… led by their new Messiah.

And here’s a primer on the ideological foundation of Agenda 21 from eco-nut William N. Ellis called “A Gaian Paradigm”:
“A Gaian paradigm,” not only has many roots but, can be, and is becoming, the underpinning of a new global network of cultures replacing the now dominant and domineering man-centered industrial cultures. The new cultures will, like all cultures, be holistic unified coherence of interdependent components — religion, economics. social, art, and others. The emergence of a Gaian paradigm is resulting in a deep fundamental transition of our world-view, our social institutions and our lifestyles.”
